One of my favourite meals growing up, especially on a cold winter day, was my mom's borscht. This one is made with garden greens, cottage cheese, and buttermilk, so it's high in protein and vitamins. Serve with warm buns, and it's a hearty meal.
Boil sausage in water, salt and pepper for 1/2 hour. Cut sausage into bite size pieces. Add greens, dill, potatoes, and onions. Boil until potatoes and onions are tender. Add cottage cheese and buttermilk. Bring to a boil, and then remove from heat.
